Hey GOP: More Capone, Less Fredo

Hey GOP: More Capone, Less Fredo

“I can handle things! I’m smart! Not like everybody says… like dumb… I’m smart and I want respect!” – Fredo Corleone, The Godfather, Part II. Chris Christie, S.E. Cupp, Joe Scarborough, Karl Rove and Jeb Bush: hardly an exhaustive list of the “Fredo” wing of the Republican Party but definitely the ones who have made the dean’s list lately. While modern Democrats channel Alinsky’s Lucifer; the GOP seems content emulating the hapless Corleone throwaway.

Legislation for Drug Testing of Welfare Recipients

It seems someone realizes the voters are watching the 2012 South Dakota Legislative session. South Dakota Rep. Mark Kirkeby (R-Dist. 35) intends to submit another bill this session to authorize drug testing of welfare recipients who are believed to be using drugs, and subsequently cut off welfare checks if they are confirmed to be using drugs. While this common-sense legislation failed last year even with a large Republican majority, can we hope that this year–with voters watching more closely than ever–that this bill may have a chance?
